Re-introducing the BEST Apple Crisp recipe you’ll find anywhere on the internet. Or anywhere, for that matter. You will love this crisp.

A few notes about your new favorite Apple Crisp recipe:

  • Use a variety of apple types for a more complex flavor. For this particular batch, I used Granny Smith, Braeburn and Honeycrisp (loooooove Honeycrisp!).

  • Feel free to replace some of the sugar with honey for a bit less of an unhealthy dessert (ha!).

  • Serve this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Even better, pour salted caramel sauce over the top of it all.

  • You will never need another Apple Crisp recipe EVER again.
